The Vice-President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has urged heads of state agencies to adopt a more efficient use of public resources to maximise the values of what has been entrusted to them.
Dr. Bawumia told the heads of state institutions at the closing ceremony of a retreat for board chairpersons, heads, and deputy heads of government institutions at Nkwatia-Kwahu on Sunday that state agencies have crucial roles to play if Ghana’s quest for less reliance on foreign aid is to be realized, and that they must adopt innovative ways of transforming their respective agencies for the benefit of all Ghanaians.
“As heads of institution, we have a responsibility to constantly represent the Ghanaian people in a transparent and accountable manner,” Dr. Bawumia said.
“It is our responsibility to always maximise the value of what has been entrusted to us for the benefit of everybody.”
Commenting on Ghana Beyond Aid, he stated that Ghana Beyond Aid is a long-term effort that will require significant resources from both the public and private sectors, to achieve the aim of becoming less reliant on foreign aid.
He urged the heads of institutions to “harness and use the country’s resources to transform the economy effectively and efficiently for a rapid, but sustainable growth path,” emphasizing the critical role the public sector is expected to play in moving Ghana closer to the vision of Ghana Beyond Aid.
“To reform our specified entities in realising a Ghana Beyond Aid, heads of institutions, need to be more professional and transparent in their approach to public investments, as well as greater efficiency in the use of all public resources.”
“It necessitates a shift in thought and attitude so that we can begin to do things differently – smarter, more efficiently and effectively, and with a greater feeling of patriotism and civic responsibility.”
